Please check the value of "set indentexpr?" and confirm that it is
"GetErubyIndent()".  If it is, try putting the cursor on a line that
is indenting incorrectly (like line 2 of the following example)


Then do

:let v:lnum = line(".")|echo GetErubyIndent()

This function is supposed to return the number of spaces that the line
should start with.  Tell me what it returns.  This might be an error
message, or multiple error messages.  If you have trouble copying and
pasting these errors, do

:redir @">

before the command and

redir END

afterwords.  This will copy the content where it can be pasted with
